This spring Grace Presbyterian Church of Montclair, New Jersey, where I am a member and an elder, launched a newsletter, Grace upon Grace. We deliver the content via our website, and send out a MailChimp message with links to major content areas when the issue is ready to go. We also prepare a print-only version for members of our church community who do not have email or internet access.
With two issues behind us, we are pleased with the results and with the response from the community. All of the content is home grown; we are blessed that many congregants are skilled writers and artists. I collect the content, provide some light editing, research public-domain images to enhance the text, and create the web pages in our WordPress environment. For the fall issue I did a little video editing as well. Finally, I’ve written a piece for each issue, so I thought it would be worthwhile to share it with the ABJ Editorial Services community.
Our church lives on the progressive side of Protestant Christianity. You will see that especially in the fall issue, which is what you will see if you click on the link above. My goal in sharing it with you is not to proselytize but to show off some results of my work outside of my freelance business. I hope you enjoy leafing through it.
Thank you for stopping by, and best wishes for peace and well-being.
